Belief in Jesus

Talk to many Christians today about the gospel, and they would have you think that belief is the whole gospel. But we’ve already seen, there is a lot more to the gospel than that. In fact, the first time the gospel message was shared, belief wasn’t even mentioned! Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38) But the emphasis on belief comes from the many other scriptures that do talk about the importance of belief: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16) Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. (John 5:24) Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sin
